Andrea was born in Switzerland but started to make trips to Iceland in 1983. She has since developed a deep love for Iceland´s natural beauty. Her guiding experience goes all the way back to 1986, guiding a backpack tour from Þórsmörk to Landmannalaugar. She has since travelled all over Iceland as well as in East Greenland. In 1999, she started summertime guiding for IMG but continued as a teacher in winter in primary school. In 2005, she quit her teaching job and started working full time as an IMG office staff member. Today she guides in Iceland and Greenland for the company.
Andrea's favorite place is Grænalón (in south Iceland, Skaftafell National Park)
